REGINA - Alex Taylor says her grandfather, whom she affectionately calls poppa, looked so cute wearing his Saskatchewan Roughriders gear that she had to take his picture.

That's when he asked if the photo would go viral — not really knowing what that meant.

"I didn't know it at the time, but he was just talking about viral in the literal definition, like, 'Do you think it'll spread?' He didn't realize that viral is a pop culture term now with the internet," Taylor said Tuesday.

"He had no idea, and I thought he knew exactly what it meant because he knows what Twitter is."

Taylor's grandfather, Bob White, wore a long-sleeve Rider shirt and a green hat with a big "S" on the front when he was at her house on Saturday to watch his beloved Canadian Football League team play.

Winter storm expected to hit Calgary, southern Alberta

  Winter storm expected to hit Calgary, southern Alberta In addition to significant snowfall, which is expected to start as rain on Sunday, some areas of the province will see winds of 60 km/h, gusting to 90 km/h. "These strong winds will combine with the falling snow to reduce visibilities in some areas. The strongest winds are expected to subside on Monday afternoon," said Environment Canada. That combination will mean a slow commute for drivers on Monday morning, so give yourself plenty of time if you have to hit the roads.

Taylor tweeted the picture and wrote: "My grandpa asked if I thought this picture of him in his Rider gear would go viral. Kinda want to try make it happen @sskroughriders."

After that, she said, "it just blew up."

"All of a sudden so many people were sharing it," she said.

"That's Rider nation for you."

As of Tuesday morning, the photo had been retweeted more than 9,000 times and liked nearly 13,000 times.

White was surprised, too, said Taylor.

"He was like, 'That's amazing,' but he just couldn't really wrap his head around the idea — the fact that 13,000 people had seen him. He was, like, 'Just me, a grandpa?'"

Why did Storm Ophelia turn the sun red? .
Parts of England have experienced an unusual side effect from Storm Ophelia: a blood red sun. The former hurricane's powerful winds have pulled air and dust up from southern Europe and Africa - with the spectacular sight prompting "lots of calls" to the Met Office.Forecaster Grahame Madge explained: "It's all connected with Ophelia, on the eastern side of the low pressure system air is coming up in the southern direction."It's most likely the appearance of sunset at midday is caused by the particles scattering the light and giving the appearance of a red sun.
